My advice would be to ignore the people bashing the game. They are in the extreme minority in beta, you only see them alot because they fall into what would be called a 'vocal minority'. They hate the game so they go around screaming about how terrible this and that is.

And those braking the NDA, I wouldn't think Blue would want NDA violations on his sight now would you?

Most poeple are in game and enjoying themselves quite a lot. It's only on the forums and in places like this that you hear otherwise. But think about it, is it different in any other MMORPG? How many MMORPG's have closed there forums becuase of such things?

I would definately say most people enjoy the game quite a lot. Yes it needs work, yes it's got bugs. But what MMORPG at this stage doesn't? There are quite a few people who don't think the game is ready for release, but seriously is any MMORPG ready for release? I mean look at games like EQ. There are STILL people in EQ who insist there playing a beta product because it's got bugs.

I suggest also waiting for the game to come out and read some REAL reviews, or try the game yourself. Most poeple love it, some don't. I find the hardcore EQ fan tends to be the type who dislikes it the most becuase it doesnt' cater to them the way they would like. It's a very open-ended game. Being uber just does not fit into the equasion.

Well anyway, back to the game. SWG rocks

So which one are you, Holocron or Q-3PO? I smell developer all over that.

Even if they did Beta test this for another month or ten it wouldn't matter. The entire design just flat out fucking sucks.

Bugs can be ironed out, and while charging people to play while fixing them is rediculous, at least they can be repaired.

But the gameplay itself, being so engraved and set in stone by the very design of the class system, will never be saved.

There's no tactics, no roles for each player. Nothing. No loot. No point in killing shit repeatedly.

Medics are laughable. I mean, they go against continuity to begin with, why stop there? Why not just remove them altogether if you're going to stay true to the Star Wars universe. Or better yet, one shot kills. I don't know anyone that can take 5 blaster shots to the face and live, at least in the movies.

My advice - scrap the Medic class, make Brawlers viable 'tank' classes, replace Medics with real healers and add a class that can do crowd control. Then put in a shitload of dungeons, load them up with loot and mobs and the game might be tolerable.

As it stands now, there are no tactics employed by groups, just blast a mob down till it's dead then spend the next 10 minutes regenerating while the Medic(s) in the group bust their asses trying to feebly heal the group.

There's so many more retarded aspects of this game I could rant on, but its already hit rock bottom, why bother kicking a man while he's down.
